So Prez. @JDMahama has granted the "Montie 3" amnesty. This wrong move could encourage more malicious attacks to the judiciary.

If the #Montie 3 were NPP or CPP members would they have been freed? Why do we keep on committing same old mistakes?

What the Montie 3 pardons will mean to incumbent and opposition's chances in the upcoming elections, is up for discussion.
